My Review:
The China Study Cookbook is a whole food, plant-based (vegan) cookbook with recipes that use no added fat and lower amounts of sugar and salt. Most of the recipes were for 4-6 people and were fairly easy to make. The author started by talking about why she eats a whole food, plant-based diet, about the program she runs, and cooking tips like substitutes for animal products (dairy, eggs) and oil.

There were recipes for 13 breads and muffins (and fruit butters), 23 recipes for breakfast dishes (coffee cake, jams, french toast, crepes, smoothies, oatmeal, granola, pancakes, etc.), 27 recipes for appetizers and salads, 15 recipes for soups, 20 recipes for sandwiches and wraps, 30 recipes for entrees (burritos, pasta, stew, etc.), 25 recipes for sides (beans, beets, corn, sauces, etc.), 23 recipes for deserts (pies, cakes, cookies, etc.)

I've tried a few of the recipes and enjoyed them. Overall, I'd recommend this cookbook to people who are interested in adding more whole-food, plant-based meals to their diet.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
